50 Cent Finally Got His Money Thanks to His Most Recent Instagram Feud
If you've been on the internet this weekend, you might have caught wind of 50 Cent's latest Instagram beef with Randall Emmett. Here's what you need to know about what went down, Lala Kent and Chrissy Teigen's involvement, and what Money by Monday even means.
If you logged into social media this weekend, you might have caught wind of 50 Cent's latest Instagram beef with Randall Emmett. It's far from the first time the rapper has taken his shade to public social media platforms, but if you need a bit of a refresher on what this weekend's feud was about, we've got you covered.
The entire beef seems to boil down to one very big tab that 50 Cent claims was never settled. According to 50, Randall Emmett (who Vanderpump Rules fans might recognize as Lala Kent's fiancé) owes the rapper $1 million. It was a convoluted storm that even got queen of the internet Chrissy Teigen involved.
So, what happened between 50 Cent and Randall Emmett?
The saga begins on Friday, when 50 Cent was sick and tired of his former co-producer Randall Emmett not paying him back his $1 million loan. We get it, considering we're not above hitting the "remind" button on Venmo when our friends forget to return those $10 we spotted them for lunch.
But instead of just shooting him a text or handling the issue discretely, he dragged Randall's fiancée Lala Kent into the whole thing and posted it on Instagram and Twitter as well. It's messy, but bear with us.
First, 50 Cent posted a clip from the current season of Vanderpump Rules where Lala is explaining how she and Randall met.
It had something to do with Randall, a producer known for his work on Silence, Escape Plan and Gotti, asking Lala to audition for a movie. According to the clip, she said: "I let him hit it the first time and we were inseparable. He would just send me, like, really expensive gifts."
"The first night we banged, I got a car the next day," Lala continued. "He was like, 'Do you want a Range Rover?'" As his caption to the clip, 50 Cent wrote, "10 seconds left in the 4 quarter hoe's are Winning. Do you want A range rover, yes, bitch yassss. Then just run out and suck a d-–k. LOL smh."
Lala clapped back and invoked #MeToo.
Lala went off in 50 Cent's comments, mocking him for acting like a "thug" but "watching Bravo" in his downtime. Fifty doubled down in the comments of this first post and added: "ME TOO ROLE PLAY: Are you a [sic] actress 😟 come to my hotel and act like you really want the role, then suck a d--k No good Randall No Good."
Lala went on her own account and said: "Fifty took a clip of me talking about what I do behind closed doors with my fiancé, and used it to diminish the validity of the #metoo movement. That I will not stand for." She has now deleted the video, but Fifty screengrabbed it first and posted it on his own Instagram page.
"Hey how is the Range Rover?" 50 mocked. "There's no difference between Harvey Weinstein and Randel Emmett! This is reality, not reality TV. Bravo B---h @bravo." Oof! We'd be remiss if we didn't note how 50 spells Randall's name each time he addresses him, which will be funnier in a sec.
50 Cent claimed Randall "faked a heart attack" to get out of paying his debts.
Despite the fact that the Vanderpump Rules star weighed into the feud, Fifty just continued to troll the couple. He posted screenshots of his text message conversations with Randall, in which the producer says he's "heading to the emergency room" because he fears he's "having [a] heart attack."
At one point, 50 posted a text message convo where Randall mistakenly called him "fofty," which made waves across the internet. By then, Randall had paid him $250,000, but Fifty (Fofty) was dissatisfied and reiterated that he wanted his money by Monday, causing the hashtag #MoneybyMonday to trend on Twitter.
When Randall's Wikipedia page was briefly changed to read that the producer "owes 50 Cent (aka Fofty) a million by Monday or else. He's faked a heart attack to get out of it thus far," 50 Cent blasted that on his social media as well.
Then Chrissy Teigen got involved...
In response to the feud, a couple of celebrities chimed in. One reality star known to Vanderpump Rules fans as James Kennedy chimed in on the first clip to write “IM DEAD ☠️☠️☠️☠️😂😂😂.”
Over on Twitter, Chrissy Teigen wrote that she did not envy Lala or Randall's position.
"I never want 50 Cent to be mad at me," she shared. Later, she added, "Please love me, fofty." 50 Cent posted Chrissy's tweets on Instagram and added, “😏I love you @chrissyteigen& john, these people just keep trying me.”
So, did 50 Cent get his #MoneybyMonday?
All is well that ends well, however, and Fifty got his $1 million back a couple of hours ago. He posted a final exchange earlier this afternoon in which Randall wrote, "Have an idea can u call me?" Later, the producer added, "Fif I agree to all the terms can u please Stop posting" and "Money will be there in the am."
"I got my money so I have no problem with Randall Emmett, in fact I'm wishing him and his family a very blessed day. Positive vibes now guys. LOL," wrote 50 Cent. As he'd promised Randall earlier, "when the money hits the accounts everything comes down," and the rapper swiftly deleted most of their feud from Instagram.
The final tweet, however, is still up to remind us of this delicious feud and of 50 Cent's eventual glory.
